    He followed it to its source in the engineering lab and felt a wave of reassurance when the person responsible for jamming out to it was precisely who he was looking for. The engineer somehow looked completely engrossed both in his work and the music at the same time.

    Beelzebub has a devil put aside for me
    For me

    Antero promptly whipped out his air guitar and played several strong power chords, approaching Wil while the note hit it's pinnacle. His face took on a rock n’ roll scrunch as he shamelessly began to headbang along to the ballad for several seconds before shamelessly shouting along with the lyrics.

    And that, ladies and gents, is how I got Bohemian Rhapsody stuck in my head for the rest of the night.

    The problem I ran into in the past is someone new would come on and take a yeoman position and somehow end up trying to take control of the ship for the “greater good” without the game master knowing.  

    And that, in a nutshell, is why Section 31 is banned in 118😎

  3. I'm a huge fan of the Vitriolic Best Buds trope, so Odo and Quark get my pick here.

    With that in mind, I feel like a special mention needs to be given to ENT's Malcolm Reed and Hayes. I know a few people who felt it was just a silly conflict overall (Starfleet vs MACO), but I've been in RL situations where I've seen (experienced) misunderstandings that devolve into this kind of paranoid desire for control over what people believe belongs to them. The stupidity of the conflict on Enterprise hghlights a human element -- because sometimes we do dumb stuff, and we don't realise it until later. Sucks it ended the way it did, though.

    I think Strange New Worlds, under the guidance of Henry Myers and Akiva Goldsman, it’s going to be a return in a way to TOS [Star Trek: The Original Series]. We are going to do stand-alone episodes. There will be emotional serialization. There will be two-parters. There will be larger plot arcs. But it really is back to the model of alien-of-the-week, planet-of-the-week, challenge-on-the-ship-of-the-week. With these characters pre-Kirk’s Enterprise. I think what people responded so much to in all three characters is this kind of relentless optimism that they have. And that they are at the young phase of their careers.

    Me when I read this.

    No love for the two newest ones?! 

    I like Jeff Russo -- he did some extraordinary work on What Remains of Edith Finch... but his Star Trek work has been fairly underwhelming. Discovery's main theme is hardly what I'd consider 'iconic', and Picard unfortunately latched on to that one episode with his flute and stuck to that concept. Both fairly impressive compositions, but ultimately too 'air-y' and constantly warrant a skip.

    That said, they're not to the level of Faith of the Heart. At least he's ahead of something.

    Phan'ta'go: =/\= Lieutenant Ukinix, this C'lem Phan'ta'go, from Main Engineering, can you hear me? =/\=

    Placing his fingers on each side of his temple, he closed his eyes momentarily, before finally deciding to tap his combadge.

    Ukinix: =/\= ::quietly:: Go ahead, Crewman... =/\=

    Ukinix is about two more "can you hear me?"s away from taking a long walk out of a short airlock, and it shows.

    Robinson: Fine… I yield the floor to my distinguished colleague. What say you of my proposal?
     
    An eyebrow rose so high on the Romulan representative that one would be forgiven for thinking she might actually be actually Vulcan.
     
    Tessara: I see the merit behind what you're asking, but it's complete codswallop and you know it.
     
    Never mind.

    Damn it.

    I think I may be the only one on here that didnt like them, but I'm waiting to see what the future episodes hold.

    You're not the only one. I felt the first two episodes were excruciatingly slow. But strangely enough, because they introduced us to (what will now be) Picard's crew, it seems to have improved significantly. Rios and Raffi have added some flavour to the mix. Rios, more than Raffi — because what's better than one Santiago Cabrera?

    Ukinix: Even though it’s tiny, the liaison office at Livernois is a Starfleet installation.  ::tapping screen:: The Tas has a link to it.  ::gesturing to screen:: We can see that the uplink between Livernois Shipyard and Starfleet is down. The main feed, in fact the main backbone of Ketar V’s communications, which connects it via its 2G relay to the rest of the Shoals, is down.  Different organisations on Ketar V rely on that backbone, it’s government-built shared infrastructure.  ::Tapping screen:: Livernois is not the only one affected.  *All* the ::counting fingers:: shipyards, CCMS, government departments, any businesses that leverage that network are in the dark.  We couldn’t even order a take away burger from Welder’s Diner.

    It's like going to Maccas and finding out the drive-thru speaker is buggered.

  10. Depends on how you define "prequel" in our current Trek circumstances -- since Discovery is in both past and present, and Picard takes place after Nemesis, we can't really call any of the shows "prequels" anymore. I disagree that prequels are evil on principle. I'm still crossing my fingers for an Anson Mount Pike show.

    But I can't see any of these captains in a show. We already know all we need to know about these guys. If we need another prequel, I'm thinking more of Erika Hernandez, Demora Sulu, or Rachel Garret -- both captains who were important in Trek history, but typically glossed over in one or two episodes (or in Sulu's case, a scene in a film) with next to no screentime. Actually, now that I've spent time thinking about the possibilities, I need a Demora Sulu show. Please, CBS.
